REALISTICALLY speaking, dancing with one devil may be the necessary extraction of coinage for an outcome which benefits the greater good. Understood. Such is the case when law enforcement grants a reduced sentence to a “lesser” criminal, but only in order to reel in the bigger fish, so to speak. And while it is hardly judicious bargaining – most inherently, for victims directly affected by said deal-making – it pales in comparison to political leaders who dance with Islamic devils, each of whom are as dangerous as the other, and have an untold capacity for killing millions.
MAKING matters exponentially more catastrophic, U.S. leaders (never mind all the rest throughout the west) have yet to imbibe the advice of the greatest military strategist (and philosopher) of all time – Sun Tzu. In fact, his words are as resonant today as they were centuries ago, circa 544 – 496 BC.
